Dying Well: Coaching for End of Life Coaches have a very important role to play in supporting clients navigating end-of-life issues.  When we hold space for authentic discussions on how to die well, humanity lives well.

Join an experiential 1 Hour 45 min session that reveals and supports development in end-of-life conversations. Whether you are a coach, a trusted advisor, or an individual seeking to hold space for another in their end-of-life decision-making, knowing your own capacity and limitations in these conversations is key. How can we empower others to find self-determination in these important decisions without doing our own work?
